    Cool Hey we've not done this for a while

    Ladies, Gents, Lauren....

    I realised something, we've not had a Free-DC BBQ for a while, I just checked we are all out of burgers n racks of ribs...
    We need to go hunt down some Cows - Dutch Power Cows to be exact so anyone any idea what projects we should look at to go get us some road kill Cow meat?

    Semi-retired from Free-DC...
    I have some time to help.....
    I need a new laptop,but who needs a laptop when you have a phone...

    FAH? We have a very weak showing there. The DPC's are grazing and unbranded.
    I'm having fun!!! I'm just not sure if it's net fun or gross fun.

    Or Not - dang it I used to crunch this but it's a separate project and I can't shell it under BOINC pity means I'd be running it and BOINC not sure BOINC will play nice with it either..

    How about DistrRTgen? We're only about 2.5 mil. behind them and it is Nvidia friendly.

    It means that there are Nvidia GPU applications available. Maybe I'll turn the boys loose on it on Monday to see what happems. Be warned though, each WU is a 4 MB download and upload.

    Hmm small problem, at the moment the Work Unit generation is off due to major heat issues within the server itself and primarily the drives - they got the kit to put in, it's just finding the time to put it in.

    This is going to take longer than I thought. I've got massive amounts done but I am having major problems with Server Backoff. The problem is so bad that I'm returning results late and not getting credit for them.

    It seems like I finally got the right combination for my limited bandwidth and we are starting to round up those cows. I'm only able to use three of my GTX260s or I overload my network. It would go a lot faster if someone else applied some Nvidia power to help.

    Everything helps. The secret is spelled GPU.

    That didn't last long. It seems like somebody went and broke it.

    This time we can't even blame Lauren.

    My problem is trying to upload results. The upload for eaxh WU is about 8mb and and the server keeps issuing a back off. Tomorrow I'm going to put all the Nvidias on for a few hours and see what happens.

    OK Gopher, fire up the grill.
    It's taken a while but it looks like there will be steaks and burgers availble tomorrow.
